New Net-Print System Saving Paper
Related services: Net-Print
After more than a month of the new Net-Print system, which launched campus-wide on January 10, there has been a 13 percent reduction in paper use. During the past 50 days, 12,701 users of Net-Print have printed 142,699 fewer pages compared to the same period last year, a savings of 713 pounds of paper.
New ID card readers at many Net-Print printing locations reduce paper use by reducing the number of unwanted print jobs not picked up from the printers. The use of an ID card reader means that in order to print, the person printing has to be at the printer to scan their Cornell University ID card to release the print job. ID card readers are in place in all library printing labs, CIT computer labs, at Architecture, Art and Planning, and a number of other locations on campus.
